"These works were spurred by a drone created by Thomas Park. It was/is a deep drone created with a trombone. In its inception, Pluto and Charon were started in a playful, fun demeanor; almost a challenge with a friendly manner. They quickly turned into two different sounding projects. One a feeling of wonder and light, the other a feeling of mystery and confrontation with the afterlife. In a series of serendipitous exchanges with Thomas it was decided to release these sounds as a mini album. I am excited to have my music enjoyed by a prominent artist such as Mystified (aka Thomas Park), and have my first official musical release into the world on his Treetrunk label. I thank Thomas Park for initiating this project. I thank you the listener, for being open to this music. I thank the muse for guiding my soul on a musical path. She has haunted many souls throughout the centuries, and I am glad that she demands I follow her. Be well fellow traveller!"-- Roy Mattson, 2013

This music captures exactly what I have felt about the planets Pluto and Charon, on an instinctive level, all my life. It's a bit too short, though - I would have loved some more of it. But maybe it's just me addicted to longform ambient.
